About Chicago

Home to two major league baseball teams and the third largest population in the USA, Chicago is located on the southwestern shore of Lake Michigan. The city has evolved over its nearly 200 year history into a major financial center with architecturally stunning buildings and thousands of acres of parkland.

Chicago's weather is mild in the spring and fall seasons, but experiences extremes of heat and humidity in the summer and exceptional chilliness in the winter.
